Lindstrom & Prins Thomas are the shit

Thought these guys deserved their own thread, there seems to be only a little discussion of them here.

So who else is really feeling these guys lately? "I Feel Space" seems to only be the tip of the iceberg, like Primal Scream's "Loaded", pre-Screamadelica. Between the new album on Eskimo, the "Tribulations" remix and the new Six Cups of Rebel (Lindstrom), dudes are killin it. i'm listening to Six Cups now and the willingness to just let it go plus the production, the instrumentation are so freeing to me. The album sounds like a disco-fied Neu! at times and this whole krautrock vibe is a direction i would love to see this going in. I find myself more than willing to go where they're taking me. Further blowing me away is the PT remix of Mental Overdrive's "Diskodans" on Smalltown Supersound (which needs to be released on vinyl right now, god damn it) - mindblowing 9 minute uptempo mix, just filthy with effects - and Lindstrom's "Plague the Kid II" on Bear Entertainment.

Now I've heard Lindstrom's previous work under the Slow Supreme moniker, and i've enjoyed and even spun out a couple of his tracks. but this, this is different.

who's wit me?!

I've only heard "I Feel Space", but it's my favorite house track in months.

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:35 (fourteen years ago) link

what's the deal with the new album on eskimo? i remember hearing about it a few months ago, but nothing more. but everything else i've heard by them is indeed the shit. "there's a drink in my bedroom and i need a hot lady" especially.

rajeev (rajeev), Friday, 26 August 2005 06:45 (fourteen years ago) link

Lindstrom/Prins Thomas remix of Juan Maclean 'Tito's Way' is awesome in a Disco-Prog kind of way.

Barnaby (Barnaby), Friday, 26 August 2005 07:57 (fourteen years ago) link

their remixes of Chicken Lips "Sweet Cow" and the Freeform Five's "Electromagnetic" are very good too.

Ronan (Ronan), Friday, 26 August 2005 08:57 (fourteen years ago) link

Album comes out 14 November. Faves so far:

1 Lindstrøm - "Paaskelyd"
2 Lindstrøm - "Er Bestemor Paa Moten"
3 Blackbelt Andersen Vs Prins Thomas - "Juling i Ringen"
4 Lindstrøm - "Drums of Life"
5 Lindstrøm - "I Feel Space"

I'm not norwegian but I think this is what the titles are in english:
1.Paaskelyd = Eastersounds
2.Er Bestemor Paa Moten = Is grandmother at a meeting
3.Juling i Ringen = Doing cartwheels in the ring

Lindbaek And Lindstrom: Alien In My Pocket is one of my favorites. I had no idea there was an album in the works, I can't wait to hear it.

jeffery (jeffery), Friday, 26 August 2005 14:12 (fourteen years ago) link

the album is fantastic, if not as uptempo and fully dancefloor as, say, Thomas' Major Swellings album that was released recently on Noid with the Idjut Boys. Listened to as a whole, it's a superb trip through a more laidback vibe. loving loving loving it. it's due out within another month or so - i got solicited on it maybe a month ago and that was way way in advance. question for someone more knowledgeable: is this the same album that was released in japan earlier in the year?

if the tribulations remix link is still active in the most recent YSI thread, go download it immediately. the bit in the middle where the distorted vocal starts stuttering and then the beat drops underneath is fucking devastating.

i hope there are plans to repress bits and pieces like 'alien in my pocket' because i NEED them. i'm in full lindstrom obsession mode at this point!

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 26 August 2005 21:38 (fourteen years ago) link

btw if you're on Oink you can get the album right this second...
job OTM with "paaskelyd"...

Lindstrøm (from Norway)

jed_ (jed), Friday, 26 August 2005 22:28 (fourteen years ago) link

think alot of the records got repressed heywood, at least we got alot of the older feedelity stuff back in on vinyl, I've not seen "alien in my pocket" yet though.

i just found them through their set on Beats-In-Space - which is great. and their own tracks seem really elegant yet meaty too.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:13 (fourteen years ago) link

m.a.n.d.y. remix of "i feel space" out this week!

tricky (disco stu), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:18 (fourteen years ago) link

i should say the tracks they've remixed instead of "their own tracks". i don't think i've heard any of their original stuff. from their set, the remix of Manuel Gottsching - E2-E4 is super.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 17:55 (fourteen years ago) link

This album is amazing!

I'm not really in the loop with this genre. What would you call it? Trip-house? It's crazy. What else would one check out if they really like this?

For frame of reference, I've also really enjoyed the Isolee record and the Vitalic. I checked all three of these out based on ILM threads.

Brooker Buckingham (Brooker B), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 18:22 (fourteen years ago) link

check out some Reverso 68, not exactly precisely the same but on a similar tip. "Piece Together" and their remixes of Juan Maclean "Tito's Way" and Bent "Coming Back" in particular.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 18:42 (fourteen years ago) link

Idjut Boys, Kango's Stein Massiv, maybe some Maurice Fulton stuff.

Plus that Beatservice comp I plugged upthread.

JoB (JoB), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 20:17 (fourteen years ago) link

Yeah Willem I bought it recently. The Lindstrom mix is a bit Love Boat disco party as opposed to their usual stuff but the Linus Loves one is really nice.

Ronan (Ronan), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 20:26 (fourteen years ago) link

What else would one check out if they really like this?

idjut boys!! chicken lips!!

maurice fulton - yes, but not MU, you should start w/ "life is water for gerbadaisies..." (recorded as "maurice fulton presents boof") and the album recorded as "maurice fulton presents stress"). also maurice's remixes.

possibly the earlier faze action ... anything before moving cities, really. also look for ray mang's work.

some of the artists on bunker and creme. a lot of it is lo-fi techno, so you sort of have to pick and choose but there's quite a bit of loose-limbed italo funk in there.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 22:01 (fourteen years ago) link

the trentemoller i've heard (a lot) is nothing like lindstrom and prins thomas though unless i'm missing some really specific track...naked music style house is really the other side of the divide here i think.

tricky (disco stu), Wednesday, 31 August 2005 22:36 (fourteen years ago) link

All you recommendorz roolz.

-- tricky (tricky@), August 31st, 2005 4:36 PM. (disco stu)

yeah, i think tricky is right. i was making recommends based on the singles / compilation tracks i've heard ... just slsked some of the album and it's MUCH more downtempo than i was expecting.

SORRY BAD RECOMMENDATIONS

(ok they are recommendations for GOOD music but not really in the same vein as lindstrom)

those recent Emperor Machine tunes on DC are a bit similar if not darker.
check the recent Stranger & Shortbus 12" on Dis-Joint out of SF...

been dying to hear that E2-E4 mix -- they've done a full-length version haven't they?


heywood jablomi (heywood), Thursday, 1 September 2005 20:15 (fourteen years ago) link

e2-e4 is the last track of their July 14th guest dj session on Beats-in-Space...can't remember how much they play/don't know the original...so...but what's there is really really nice. thx for the ysi link.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Thursday, 1 September 2005 20:33 (fourteen years ago) link

I'll take sueno latino instead!

but in this topic...I hadn't heard emperor machine untill the recent simian mobile disco mix. I like that a lot.

Dan Selzer (Dan Selzer), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:16 (fourteen years ago) link

God, there's a mix of "Sueno Latino" I've never found on CD that's the same as most of the original mixes but has this electric guitar solo in the middle of it that just sounds incredible (and still Mediterranean).

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:19 (fourteen years ago) link

Emperor Machine "Bloody Hell" is my favourite of theirs.

Also check out Padded Cell on Suicide Recordings, they've done a few remixes here and there too. Very good stuff.

Ronan (Ronan), Thursday, 1 September 2005 21:21 (fourteen years ago) link

the lindstrom / prins tomas lp on eskimo is very down tempo / jazz funk. i think they felt it should be an albu for listening to rather than a set of club tracks.

lindstrom tends to have two sides to his sound - the tripped out space disco and the noodly muso side. the 'i feel space' 12' demonstrates this to a t (which incidentally he recorded four years ago).

he has a forthcoming 12' coming called 'serious syntoms' which is the rawest thing he's ever done. endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth. sounds like it was recorded live in one take. mega.

i spent a very drunken night out with prins thomas recently and i get the impressiont that what we have heard so far is only the tip of the iceberg. mad, as they both have families and other jobs to keep them busy too.

stirmonster (stirmonster), Thursday, 1 September 2005 22:14 (fourteen years ago) link

one of my favourite tracks of the year Nemesi - "Cosmica(Lindstrom and Prins Thomas mix)"

jed_ (jed), Friday, 2 September 2005 00:34 (fourteen years ago) link

"endlessly repeating, slighty modulating moog bassline, live snare and hi hat and a bit of arp synth." -- i'm already excited about this (or atleast what you're describin)

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 00:43 (fourteen years ago) link

yeah that description has me drooling.

out this week: "i feel space" m.a.n.d.y. remix on playhouse
and lindstrom & prins thomas remixes (vocal and instrumental) of silver city on 20/20 vision...

heywood jablomi (heywood), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:10 (fourteen years ago) link

i listened to (what i think is) the e2-e4 section again last nite from the set...its hard to say where it begins or ends - I think he's weaving other songs in and out - or perhaps its just a short snippet.

anyway, "Call Me Mr. Telephone"-- is awesome if folks haven't heard. They seems to be heavily influenced by 70's rock but not in a gimmicky way??? he goes kinda fleetwood mac in the middle of that song but its totally nice.

Susan Douglas (Susan Douglas), Friday, 2 September 2005 16:35 (fourteen years ago) link

i'm not much of a fan of that m.a.n.d.y. remix. although that's probably because the original is so amazing.

Principe del Norte felt totally overwhelming when it came out - I only listened to it a couple of times back in Feb - but returning to this weekend and I'm blown away.

For whatever it's worth, it's quickly becoming one of my 2016 faves.

MikoMcha, Sunday, 27 November 2016 16:53 (two years ago) link

Al Moon Faced Poon (Moodles), Sunday, 27 November 2016 22:00 (two years ago) link

^Yes. It's as good or bad as any other remix compilation. BUT it does include new tracks "I", "J" and "K", which are up there with the best of Principe del Norte. I'm treating these tracks as an addendum to the parent album in my EOY list.

Two and a half hours of goodness from Mr Thomas on BiS last night (including a track from the recent Lindstrom 7" promo):

groovypanda, Wednesday, 7 December 2016 20:28 (two years ago) link

I am only just now getting around to Principe Del Norte and it is SO good, probably my favorite solo album of his. sounds a lot more melodic than his other stuff for some reason. in any event, extremely good and totally worth the time investment, even though the messed-up labels don't make it easier to keep track of things.

also I saw him DJ on Friday night in a LA warehouse for 6 hours straight and it was RAD. fun fact: Thomas' set at the dearly-departed Mountain Bar ten years ago (!!!) was my first venture into LA nightlife.

The vocals on 'Shinin' really smack of "will this do?" and have just reminded me how outrageous it is that Christabelle seemingly disappeared without trace.

Matt DC, Friday, 25 August 2017 08:11 (two years ago) link

this is sounding very cool

https://assets.boomkat.com/spree/products/433278/large/5053760030515_T11_Image.jpg

Prins Thomas provides a thorough, kraut-ish, cosmic-styled overhaul of Dungen’s Häxan, a soundtrack to the 1929 animation film ‘Adventures of Prince Achmed’

“With ‘Versions By’ Prins Thomas takes Dungen on a journey down a new winding road; 17 minute epics, wide open spaces, Balearic ambience, psychedlia, all things cosmic and Kraut grooves. Or as the sleeve notes remark; "recorded, remixed, rearranged, chopped, screwed, glued and partially reproduced with love by Prins Thomas".

The record is woven together with the same stitch as his seminal mix-albums ‘Cosmic Galactic Prism’ and ‘Paradise Goulash’, creating the perfect flow, way beyond a mix. It’s obvious Prins Thomas has been enjoying himself with the original analogue tapes of the record.

“Dungen has long been one of my favourite bands. Their music is a daily staple in the house, so much so that even my 3 year old daughter recognises any Dungen record from the first few seconds playing. If there's any ‘dream comes true’s’ left, having Joakim (Smalltown Supersound founder) request a remix for them comes close. The tracks in question was the music for the 1929 animation film Adventures of Prince Achmed, the music that later became the Häxan album. With all the possibilities AND the limitations these tapes had it would be easy to get lost on the way… and of course, it DID get totally out of hand and I ended up with over an hour of recorded material. It has to be pointed out, this is NOT a ‘Dungen’ album, but more like an exploration of the raw material. In some places only using a single sound or two to construct something new, in other places just rearranging sections of songs. Hope you all enjoy hearing this record heard through a new set of ears.” – Prins Thomas”

The new single "Shinin" may be his most generic track ever.

skip, Friday, 6 October 2017 18:36 (two years ago) link

Shinin' seems of a part with the Lindstrøm & Christabelle stuff, which I'm cool with. very much looking forward to hearing what he does with Jenny Hval.

Tensions is the more recent Lindstrøm single, and fits in nicely with the more spacey instrumentals. haven't heard anything yet to suggest that the album won't be dope.

fffv, Friday, 6 October 2017 21:38 (two years ago) link

I much prefer Lindstrom on his own. Prinz gets pretty fucking interminably noodly - his solo album is perhaps the dullest tenner I ever spent.

thirst trap your hare (DJ Mencap), Wednesday, 18 October 2017 11:15 (two years ago) link

He was great last year when I saw him. Weirdly the small crowd was more into Closing Shot etc and barely responded to I Feel Space.

Gukbe, Wednesday, 18 October 2017 11:46 (two years ago) link

The new album has several fantastic moments but he stopped surprising us years ago and the quality just plummets nearly every time a vocalist appears. Only Jenny Hval's song rises above the completely generic and I usually can't abide her solo stuff.

Matt DC, Friday, 20 October 2017 08:04 (one year ago) link

It just reminded me of how much I'd prefer to hear Christabelle again to that utterly off-the-peg Scandi sadsack 'contribution' to 'But Isn't It'.

Matt DC, Friday, 20 October 2017 08:19 (one year ago) link

Never mind. Prins Thomas has been excelling of late. There's a taster track from PT5 on Spotify today (also here: http://www.factmag.com/2017/10/05/prins-thomas-5-album/). I didn't really like the Björn Torske collab LP, but the "Edmond / Montague Grant" and "Apokalypso" 12 inches are great, as is the Dungen remix album. All of these sound nothing like each other.

The Prins Thomas semi-improvised duet album with Norwegian jazz pianist Bugge Weeseltoft is really good. Laid back listening that's perfect for lazy summer Sunday afternoon. Could have done without the last track ('Epilog'), which finally crosses over into aimless noodling. But the rest is quality. PT continues to bat at over .900 while remaining as prolific as ever.

I listened to the first 50mins or so on my commute this morning and I got most of the way to the office before I heard anything approaching a beat, all multilayered ambient soundscapes but absolutely gorgeous on headphones. Looks like it might perk up on the second and third discs.

niiice, looks a companion piece to Cosmo Galactic Prism, which is GOAT IMO

^the last track Sakral is amongst his best

This new album and his last few collabs have been really really nice. Excellent stuff for high quality stereos/headphones too; really pristine production

Just picked up Ambitions. Really great album.

I like the track that was released off the new Lindstrom. Looking forward to it. Moving to all live instruments plus drum machines seems like a logical evolution for him.

New Album/EP out today

It's very ambient sounding on first listen

'feel the love' has a pretty weird low end, i never noticed it until playing it on just a particular sound setup that highlighted the bass

j., Thursday, 17 October 2019 00:54 (yesterday) link

OK so the new Lindstrom album as a whole I think is a pretty minor thing but also really pleasant. Like taking a warm bath in analog synths. I had it on the other day while I was taking a walk and it was nice soundtrack music.

The first track is noodly rubbish imho, but the other three are beautiful. Might be the best thing he's done since Real Life Is No Cool.

does it look like i'm here (jon123), Thursday, 17 October 2019 16:01 (yesterday) link

this is lovely. the first track is great!

he's such a talented melodist, it's fun to hear him go in a more idk classical/new age direction. 'swing low sweet lfo' sounds like it could be the 'i am the center' comp, reminds me of the iasos track. it's all pretty 'noodly' tbh but i would rather describe it that quality as 'deep' and as something that has the promise to emerge and gain life through repeated listens.

cheese canopy (map), Thursday, 17 October 2019 20:11 (yesterday) link

on first listen this is just beguilingly good imo, very near the top of the new age / ambient / balearic revival of the last 15 years.

the promise to emerge and gain life through repeated listens.

Definitely been true for me. Things that just seemed formless the first time through take on texture and shape. Especially on that first track, which I really like.
